    Default

    localhost.romans.lan, or hbg-mail.romans.lan are not fully qualified hostnames.

    A fully qualified hostname is something like:
    mail.somedomain.com
    or zimbra.somecollege.edu
    or something like that

    You definitely need to have a real domain name (which exists in forward and reverse DNS) for your Zimbra server (or any mail server) to work.

    Thank's !

    I changed my /etc/hosts to :
    192.168.21.110 hbg-mail.romans.lan mail.sarenne-motors.ch

    And : zmlocalconfig -e postfix_smtp_helo_name = 'mail.sarenne-motors.ch'

    Reboot server, but i always have : <hbg-mail>: Helo command rejected: need fully-qualified hostname (in reply
    to RCPT TO command)

    Another things to modify ?

    Thank you
